    Not seen a thread Here yet.

    Anyone think the reboot is a good idea. LionSgate are all so part of this.
    There isn't much info out yet. I do hope the original cast are in it, mainly the white and pink ranger.

    I believe the original Yellow Ranger is dead, so that won't be entirely possible.

    The red ranger wasn't a porn star, that was a guy that looked like him according to google. He's a fireman or something these days and out of shape.

    The blue ranger turned out to be gay, yellow ranger died, pink ranger did some poor quality movies and no idea about the black one. I'll keep an eye on this movie as my young lad is after getting into the original series on netflix.

    Meet the brand new Pink, Black, Red and Blue Power Rangers
    We’ve got the first look at the new Power Rangers who will feature in the upcoming film reboot.

    The new movie, based on the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers TV series, will be directed by Project Almanac’s Dean Israelite, and see the rangers’ powers become more than super but mystical too.

    Apparently the team will have to take control of these powers in order to stop an unspeakable evil.

    The film won’t be out until 2017, but here’s the new actors taking over the heroic roles.

    The Yellow Ranger has yet to be announced, but we can guess that the actress who will play her won’t be Asian.

    In the Nineties TV show, the actress Thuy Trang played the Yellow Ranger with black actor Walter Jones as the Black Ranger. A lot of people saw this as a racist move, though producers have denied this.

    Clearly with the casting so far the production are taking care they won’t receive the same sort of criticism.

    But we hope the Black Ranger still practices Hip Hop Kido!

    Director And Writers: Dean Israelite will direct the film, while Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz will write the script. Miller previously worked on "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class."

    Israelite told IGN he was "instantly drawn" to the movie. "I read the script and was really surprised by it and thought there was a really cool, contemporary, mature, but still playful, buoyant and fun take on the material, and [it] was updated in a really interesting way. It had this wonderful character that's essential to going on a fantastic adventure," Israelite dished.

    Original Green Ranger: Fan-favorite Tommy, who went from being the Green Ranger to the White Ranger in the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" television series, is expected to have a cameo in the film. In an interview with ComicBook.com, actor Jason David Frank said he knows he'll be involved in the movie in some way, shape or form. "They talked to me about it," he said. "I don’t know how much I am involved, but for sure cameos at least in the reboot movie."

    The Villain: The Power Rangers have done their job in taking out several villains over the years, but there is a major one who declared she would return and still hasn't. According to Collider, Scorpina is rumored to the the villain in the film, the minion of Rita. Scorpina is expected to attack the Rangers Morphin Grid, which harbors all of the energy of past and present Rangers.

    "Dino Charge": Collider also reported the movie is expected to begin with the Dino Charge Power Rangers battling Scorpina. The film may not be a complete reboot, as Israelite dodged a question by IGN about whether the movie would exhibit continuity with the original TV series. Does that mean we might see the original "Power Rangers" Jason, Kim and Zach, as well as Tommy? In any case, the new characters are rumored to have the same names and traits as the original "Power Rangers."

    Filming: ScreenRant reported "Power Rangers" will begin filming in Vancouver in 2016.

    The Power Rangers became popular with the success of the Fox Kids TV show in 1993. Two feature films were later made, 1995's "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie" and 1997's "Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie."

    "Power Rangers" will be released in theaters Jan. 13, 2017.

    Not exactly. The actors playing them left and so did the characters. New characters replaced them but they weren't recast.
